ACROBATICS (AGES 3-18)

Our Acrobatics program follows the Acrobatics Arts syllabus and classes are taught by Acrobatic Arts Certified teachers.

What is AcroDance?

AcroDance is the beautiful fusion of the artistic motion of dance and the athleticism of acrobatics.  AcroDance is not the same as gymnastics. An AcroDancer must complete all of the skills on the hard stage without the advantage of a sprung floor, while seamlessly integrating musicality, emotional expressions, extension, control, and line.  The sprung floor allows the gymnast to complete much more difficult tumbling when compared to what is recommended in AcroDance. Skills taught in AcroDance might look the same as gymnastics, but they are taught differently to compensate for the conditions.  Neither the “AcroDance” way nor the “Gymnastics” way are wrong, but they are different.

Why Acrobatic Arts?

Acrobatic Arts is a progression-based syllabus program for teaching AcroDance.  Thoughtful progressions and structured levels assist teachers to properly train their dancers’ bodies to advance to the next level only when they are ready for it.  This greatly reduces the potential for injury, creates more technically correct work, and helps dancers to progress more quickly (in the long run).

HIP HOP (AGES 5-18)

Our popular Hip Hop classes begin with B-Bop, our beginner classes for early elementary-aged kids.  Our leveled Hip Hop classes are for beginner to advanced students. No formal dance training is necessary!  Students are placed based on age and/or experience and mastery of the previous level.
